disrupted this election like many of us thought might take place. so far this election is said to have gone reasonably well despite the violence and low turnout. brian: who's favored to win? is it karzai in a run away or are the polls, indeed, closing? >> well it looks like president karzai will probably take the overwhelming share of the vote but probably won't get enough to avoid a second-round runoff. he needs 50% plus one vote in order to win outright. and right now he looks well short of that. but it all depends on turnout to see just who who will win and if there will be a second round of this election. brian: all right, conor. thanks. gretchen: iraq's prime minister is calling for a security review after a wave of bombings. sunni insurgents are blamed for the violence yesterday in baghdad. malaki's statement is the first by government leaders there acknowledging security problems since the u.s. withdrew troops from iraqi cities. president obama called the violence "senseless." two soldiers are dead in the crash of an army blackhawk helicopter near the top of colorado's second highest
